Survey of Household Spending 2012


I have a researcher interested in accessing post 2009 SHS data. Statistics Canada announced the release of data through to 2012 in January of this year: <>
Is this currently available via the DLI and if not, when we can see expect it?

The Author Division confirmed that: “Data from the Survey of Household Spending is available on CANSIM (tables 203-0021 to 203-0028, 203-0030 and 203-0031). The latest data available on CANSIM is 2012. There are no Public Use Microdata Files (PUMFs) produced from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 Survey of Household Spending. Usually the PUMFs were provided to DLI. The internal data files from the 2010 and 2011 Survey of Household Spending are available in the Research Data Centres (RDCs)."
